Welcome to NFTE Baltimore’s Volunteer Homepage
We deliver entrepreneurial education to 17 sites throughout the city. Volunteers provide valuable experiences, share personal stories, and are business mentors to our students. Our volunteer-guided field trips to local businesses and class visits from businesspersons help students to connect their classroom learning to the world around them.
Our volunteers are diverse individuals—corporate executives at major national and international companies, entrepreneurs, young professionals, retired executives, and mid-level managers—who represent all aspects of business operations. They are enthusiastic about entrepreneurship and helping students define their pathway to prosperity. Our volunteers’ efforts have a direct and lasting influence on the personal and professional successes of our young people.

Our program model is a stimulating classroom-based curriculum.

We help students realize that core school subjects are relevant to their lives and can help them succeed.
Students learn throughout the year what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur and the skills necessary to launch, manage, and grow their own busin
